Monogamy is For Suckers, Man

So you’ve been in a long-term relationship for a while, and things are starting to get stale. The romance is fleeting. The sex is formulaic. And now, you’re starting to get that wandering eye. You’re beginning to wonder if you’re cut out for this monogamy thing. You keep telling yourself: This is a perfectly normal thing. But is it?

Committed couplers Nigel and Jamie have hit a bypass. Nigel is a free spirit who’s up for trying new things. On the eve of their ten-year anniversary, Nigel decides he wants to bring some fresh, young blood into the relationship to spice things up. But his boyfriend Jamie isn’t so sure. Still, he wants it to work out so badly, he’s willing to bring another boy to bed if it means keeping the relationship together. But the questions remain: Is monogamy a necessity in a committed gay relationship? Is it just a misinformed standard? Is it even possible? Find out when Blowing Whistles, the latest Stage Left play at Sol Theatre (1140 N. Flagler Dr., Fort Lauderdale), premiers Friday at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $30. Call 954-801-9207, or visit
